I'm trying to learn how to selectively edit photos in Lightroom 4.1 and I watched this video and it seems easy to do. And the brush seems easier to maniuplate then the selection tool in Adobe Elements. However, when I try to edit the selected portion of the photo I end up with strange colours on the selected part of my photo, instead of the effects of shadows, curves, sharpening etc.
The link for the video I viewed was very helpful
but it does not cover what I am experiencing
Here is a screen shot of my attempted edit
Can anyone please tell me what am I doing wrong? Something in the settings?
